Father’s Day is approaching…
My fourth Father’s Day that will pass without my dad. I keep thinking it will get easier or I will miss him less…not so.
Over the past 3 1/2 years I have had plenty of time to think about the man of God he was.
It is true that actions speak louder than words. He did not tell me to love my neighbor as myself, or care for the elderly or give a ride to hitchhiker(which I ‘ve never done, he has). He did not tell me to work in a soup kitchen or reach out to a lonely, straying teenager. He followed what he believed the Lord was calling him to do and just did it without fanfare or giving it a second thought.
Mankind, He has told you what is good and what it is the Lord requires of you:
to act justly
to love faithfulness,
and to walk humbly with your God
Following in his footsteps because he walked humbly with his God.
A father’s holy life is a rich legacy for his sons(or daughters).
